Do you remember learning how to blow bubbles with bubblegum? You might do it unconsciously now, but if you think about it, it’s quite the difficult task for a little kid.
Trying to coordinate your tongue and the gum and your breathing? That’s a lot to think about!
This little boy shows us the power of perseverance as he attempts to blow his first bubble.
Someone in your life could probably use a little encouragement today, so don’t forget to hit share to show them the importance of sticking with it!
His first attempt, pictured below, is close. He gets a little bubble going, but it quickly pops. Mom makes sure to encourage him to give it another go.
The camera transitions, indicating that there were probably many, many other attempts in between, and the little boy tries again.
You can see the concentration on his face as he chews the gum, flattens it out and prepares to blow air into it.
The screenshot below isn’t a “derp” moment at all — he’s squinting his eyes because he’s so concentrated on blowing the bubble!
And this time, he does it!
The bubble doesn’t last very long, so it’s popped by the time he realizes he’s done it. But his eyes snap wide open and he starts cheering as though he’s won the Superbowl!
His celebration might seem disproportionate to the success, but it’s a reminder of how good it feels to achieve something you’ve been putting all your effort and concentration into.
